Art Journal: Where am I going

July 26, 2011

I am coming to a crossroads in my life.  I can feel it.  And I know where I want to end up, but I don’t know exactly how I am supposed to get there.

where am i going

You’ve all felt that way, right?  And the more I think about it the more I think, what if what I want right now is not what I am supposed to do.  It’s a lot to think about, and I wrote myself some notes about what I want right now, and what I think I need to do to get it.  Of course, one thing can change the course of a life in an instant.  I guess we’ll see what happens.

and how do i get there from here

It is a never ending circle of thinking and planning and changing.  This quote from Joseph Campbell is one I think about all the time. “We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

    Me too! But instead of making beautiful art with my crossroads angst, I am lying awake all night and pacing holes in the floor.

    Hey! Go for it!!! I ran across a quote the other day : “She believed she could, so she did.”
    Whatever it is that you are considering, let me encourage you to move forward. If you are worried about whether you will like it when you get there, you can always move forward from that point. Oh I sound like I’m trying to be wise, don’t I? I guess I feel like if I made a few different decisions THEN I would be in a different place NOW. (excluding husband and kids – of course. I love my fam.) This is about work satisfaction, etc. Sorry for the long response. ~~~ (Please don’t ditch the blog! You’ve encouraged me to try to sew and create!) ~~ Paige
